    I am new here, and so many people have been so nice and thoroughly entertaining. On many occasions I have gotten a bunch of rep points and thought oh that's nice. Then last week some asshole who didn't even say anything to me on a thread gave me 6 -150 point in a row. So I'm thinking to myself is this supposed to upset me? This isn't a bank account your effecting. Your not keeping me from getting pussy. It's a nice gesture to give someone points as a complement, but what purpose do negative points serve? Does anyone give a shit? Am I missing something? I check this site from my phone a few times a day, I don't live in front of my computer at my mom's house. I don't think about message board points at any point during my day. Please tell me if I'm missing something. I just don't understand the concept.

    Thanks, zoo za zoo to you all

    I kind of enjoy them. I enjoy them more when people aren't carpet bombing me with -150s, though...

    Like I said its a nice gesture to give someone points. It's like sending a present over the message board, but if you don't like something I say call me a cunt or tell me why I probably touch little boys. What is the purpose of taking away points. When I get them i think wow that person is a cool cat. When someone takes them i think this person had no life and has been shit on so bad in life that this is all he can do to try and free like he/she had control of something. Is there a purpose to the points or not really?

    I do enjoy repping and getting reps, and the little notes that come along with.

    Reps are meaningless, just a cute little way to send a note. Reps do not reflect a members popularity. Reps can be manipulated. When you have groups of people that rep each other daily and end up with bloated rep counts. you also have groups of people that will single an individual out to neg them relentlessly.

    I wouldn't put 2 cents of stock into them.

    I'm north Oakland county. I have a cottage a little west of Clare. Traverse city is too damn far. I don't know how people have second homes so far away unless they're retired. Two hours is my sweet spot. A guy on our lake comes all the way from Chicago. He passes a ton of nice lakes on the way. It's crazy.

    Yea it's about 3 hours and 15 minutes. We have a golf membership at the resort and my dad has a larger boast so he wanted to be on one of the great Lakes. Plus we live being close to torch lk and Charlevoix. Boyne for skiing. My parents were going to retire there but syst the economy crashed my dad had to go back to work. But yea there ate a ton of great spots in michigan.

    I like being in the central area. One thing that sucks is we don't have great towns around us. Clare is it. Our town is almost not a town at all. But, day trips are easy. We go up to Traverse City to spend the day sometimes. My aunt and uncle are in Charlevoix and we'll visit them. Another friend is on Mullet Lake. Even Mackinac is a day trip. Our values stay lower than those places. In one way that's good because I could afford it, but it's depressing to see prices going up in Traverse City while we remain stagnant.

    Don't do that unless you want to lose your VIP status and get banned for a few days. :grad:

    I don't care about my overall rep score, but I always like it when someone gives me reps with a comment.
